DOUG WINTER'S GOLD COINS OF THE NEW ORLEANS MINT: 1839-1909

Dave Ginsburg writes: "On behalf of Doug Winter, I want to let
everyone know that his latest book, "Gold Coins of the New Orleans
Mint: 1839-1909" has just gone to press.  The publisher, Zyrus
Press (www.zyruspress.com) expects that it will be available in
late June or early July.  This volume represents an updated edition
of the author's "New Orleans Mint Gold Coins: 1839-1909", which
appeared in 1992.

This edition includes color photographs of each plate coin (over
100 in total), updated population estimates, comments on each
coin's typical appearance (strike, surfaces, luster, coloration
and eye appeal), and a discussion of die characteristics, major
varieties, significant examples and auction record prices.

As a "special treat", this edition includes a history of the New
Orleans Mint and an illustrated overview of its operations by Greg
Lambousy, Director of Collections of the Louisiana State Museum
(a copy of Mr. Lambousy's article on the history of the New Orleans
Mint that appeared in the March 2003 issue of Numismatist is available
at Mint Article), and my essay discussing
"How Gold Coins Circulated in 19th Century America", both written
especially for this book.  The press run for this edition is
expected to be between 1500 and 2500 copies."
